    Poll: Dell E1505N or Macbook?

    I may be getting a laptop soon and since I don't want a computer with windows on it I am considering a Macbook and a similarly-equipped Dell E1505N (pre-loaded with Ubuntu). If I get the MacBook, I'm...

    Re: Feedback on Linux: Whines

    The same could be said about a lot of hardware and software. Linux simply has less hardware/software support since it's less popular. That's something we'll have to live with for the time being.

    Can't get it to work on Dapper. When I try to run renouveau, I get this error message:

    Poll: Re: Is Ubuntu really too dependent on the terminal?

    You need the terminal in Ubuntu to set up an ADSL internet connection.

    SuSE and Mandriva have graphical configuration tools for ADSL and cable connections, and standalone graphical configuration...

    Poll: Re: Xbox 360 or New Computer?

    Nah. 360 games look good, but not as good as games on a cutting-edge $2000 PC. Take a look at this comparison between the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Prey, for example.

    The problem is that these games are nowhere near as popular as commercial games made by companies such as the ones mentioned in the original post. There are people who have spent their money on and...

    My Dapper installation's been working fine, and I don't want to bother with all of the problems I could encounter upgrading to Edgy. I don't see much benefit in upgrading to edgy because most of the...

    Poll: Re: en_GB users, what should "Trash" be called?

    I don't care. Does calling it "Wastebasket" instead of "Trash" really make a difference? It's a trivial argument and the developers should concentrate on more important things.
  13. Re: Windows Vista: a time for Ubuntu to attack!

    I agree that Ubuntu needs more exposure. People consider Macintosh an option and not Linux because they've never heard of Linux before! Macintosh is only slightly more popular than Linux (around 1%...
  14. Re: Will PS3 be a chance for Linux to gain marketshare?

    I agree. Versions of Linux for the Xbox and the PS2 have been around for years and AFAIK have had no significant impact on Linux's market share. What makes Linux for the PS3 any different?

    I didn't vote. I'd buy their games if they made good games. :)

  23. Re: Articles like this are the reason we get these "I'm leaving" threads...

    Linux probably never will reach the point where "everybody" is going to use it. I think it's far more likely to get to the point where there's a substantial amount of apps that are available for it -...
  24. Re: Articles like this are the reason we get these "I'm leaving" threads...

    In my opinon the reason is because Linux just isn't popular enough. We'll need to wait - we've seen more and more hardware and software makers support Linux over the years, and I think that this...

    Poll: Re: Itunes or DRM for linux

    DRM and iTunes are bad but I'd like to see it on Linux anyway. I wouldn't use it, but there are a lot of people who do - and I'm willing to bet that some people aren't adopting Linux because they do.
